2 weeks stay at the Kole Kole side of Baobab Beach Resort, with 4 day safari in the middle.
Best aspect - the staff....everyone, but everyone, was ALWAYS friendly, helpful and cheerful, from reception check in to gardeners and pool towel boys.
Worst aspect - no private beach. Beach sellers insistant but never threatening, just a right royal pain. (My wife and teenage daughter wouldn't go to the beach because of this, preferring to stay by one of the three pools). I used the beach every day but had to run the gauntlet of beach boys selling anything from key rings to safaris - just say no insistantly!
Accomodation was very acceptable - we had two double beds as a 3 person family room.
Buffet food and drink plentiful and fine for us but certainly not haute cuisine standards - this is Africa after all!
Beware of the monkeys - don't leave food or drink unattended, they will certainly pinch it!!
All in all, a very pleasant fortnight.
